Did you get into real estate investing thinking it was just another easy-button, get-rich-quick business?
There’s work involved here.
You’ve got to hustle.You’ve got to work at this business to make it work.
When I think about the investors who are crushin’ it and doing deals… they’re working hard. They are hustlers.
They’re the ones who get out there and make things happen.
They understand sales and the importance and value of marketing and leads…
They’re the 1st to call a lead back… 1st to meet the seller in person… 1st to send an offer… 1st to follow up.
And that’s what you have to do—hustle. Bust your balls (or lady balls?). You can’t be lazy.
I’m just going to say it: You’ve got to poop or get off the pot.
And here’s something to be aware of…
There are a number of creative ways investors do business that are not understood by some title companies… or some attorneys… or some mortgage brokers.
They tell us it can’t be done or it’s not even legal.
When that happens, what do you do?
Quit and run? Whine? Make excuses?
Well, the investors who are doing deal after deal after deal don’t complain and definitely don’t take no for an answer.
What do they do? They hustle.
If one title company says they won’t work with you (an investor), go to the next one. And keep looking—investor-friendly people in these positions are out there.
I mean, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do otherwise.
Ask your fellow investors who are doing deals who they use for a title company or broker or closing attorney. Simple. Done and done.
But you’ve got to get out there and make it happen.
Ask yourself: How bad do you want it?
